SOURCE: how to remove cmos battery from socket g 31

If the BIOS/CMOS battery is a coin size battery then use a sharp point and press it against the small metal tab that hold the battery in place and the battery will pop up. You can then pick up this battery.

Xps 8700 five beeps and five beeps starts windows goes to power save mode


Sundeep B posted this July 2013 on the DELL.COM>Community>Support Forums>Desktop>Desktop General Hardware Forum

DEL5 beep error code indicates an issue with RTC power and indicates an issue with CMOS battery. You may try reseating CMOS battery. You may refer to Owner's Manual Here. The location of CMOS battery is as shown below :
5342.xps-8700-system_5f00_board_5f00_04.jpg
The video cards mentioned by you should function properly, however, Dell has tested XPS 8700 only with following video cards :
  • nVidia GeForce GTX 660 GTX 645 GTX 650Ti GTX 660
  • AMD Radeon HD 7570 HD8870

Bios password reset on a Dell XPS 1530. Bios reset software will not work for you cannot boot from disc while a bios password is implemented. Removing CMOS battery overnight does not work either.


I am not going to take credit for information but here the link. Please read, removing the CMOS battery will never solve it nor replacing it.

My Dell XPS 400 PC will not Boot up past the "System password"


Both the system password and the BIOS password are set in the BIOS CMOS. You need to clear the CMOS.

The online Dell service manual for the XPS 400 provides a clear and detailed procedure for clearing the CMOS. It's just a matter of moving some jumpers around:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/index.htm

If you are not used to working inside computers, start with "Removing the computer cover", then go to "System Setup" and click on "Clearing Forgotten Passwords".

Another method is to unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for a 1/2 hour or so. For details on how to do that, try this website:

My laptop wont let me in i bought it at this yard sale when i turn the power on it ask me for passord i dont know it what cai do.


Depends when it asks for P/W is in the black n white screen or logon to windows.

Boot into safe mode and negotiate to passwords in control panel, remove password.(If in windows logon P/W)

If its at boot up in bios then its a complete dismantle of the laptop to remove the cmos battery for 1 hour.

My xps 420 pc desktop wont boot. Shut it down last


Try and reset your CMOS and see if it helps.

If you're not sure how, then unplug the power cable from your PC, then take off the side panel, on the motherboard is a set of 2 or 3 pins to Clear the CMOS (reset the BIOS) all boards are different, so there is no set location for the CMOS pins, if you're unsure, just remove the battery from the motherboard for about 30 seconds, then replace it ("+" facing up)

But you need to make sure your PS is not plugged into any external power source while you're doing this or you risk deleting your BIOS

Hope this helps in some way.

How can I remove the bios password on a dell xps desktop?


Usually, you can remove the CMOS battery, unplug power from the machine, and press the power button. wait 10 minutes, replace the cmos battery and power cord, then start the machine. that works for about 90% of any pc out there. If that should fail, then look at the system board for a jumper that says "Clear CMOS" (it may also be a button). In order to be more helpful I would need to know the exact model of that xps.
